    Hello All,

    I just picked up a new addition from our local chicken supply store. They said she came in with Barred Rocks, she has been at the store for several weeks probably due to her fuzzy feet. Does anyone have any input on where the fuzz could have come from? Any input is appreciated.

    It could be a Cuckoo Maran, they sometimes have feathered legs. It could also be a Barred Rock mix.

    Cuckoo marans. They have white skin and lightly feathered legs like yours. Lucky you! :)

    Thanks for the response. I did some research after your responses and she seems to fit the bill. We are brand new at backyard chickening and I am excited to add her to our group of chicks.
